# ELATE: Elastic tensor analysis

Welcome to ELATE, the online tool for analysis of elastic tensors, developed by **Romain Gaillac** and **François-Xavier Coudert** at CNRS / Chimie
ParisTech.

If you use the software in published results (paper, conference, etc.), please cite the corresponding paper (*J. Phys. Condens. Matter*, 2016, 28, 275201) and give the
